Chiropractic Care after an automobile accident

Have you or someone you know been involved in a motor vehicle accident? One of the most common injuries from a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash will occur when a sudden, jarring movement of the head is sustained forward, backward, or even to the side. Whiplash will destabilize the spine and cause severe pain. Other symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadness
  • Blurry Vision
  • Ringing in the Ears
  • Neck Pain and Stiffness
  • Numbness and Weakness, reduced range of motion of the head and neck
  • Back Pain and Stiffness
  • Whiplash
  • Leg Pain
  • Numbness and weakness, reduced range of motion of the back
  • Jaw Pain
  • Elbow, Wrist, or Hand Pain with reduced range of motion
  • Hip, Knee, Ankle or Foot Pain with reduced range of motion

It is imperative that chiropractic care is sought right after an auto accident to reduce the effects of whiplash and prevent them from inducing long term pain. The physical effects of an accident are not always known or felt right afterwards. It can take days, weeks, or even months for these symptoms to show up. This is why is is essential to seek care immediately.
